Answer

Because increased exertion leads to sweating, which greatly exacerbates miliaria, patients should be advised to limit their activity, especially in hot weather, until the miliaria resolves.

Patients with miliaria profunda are at particularly high risk for heat exhaustion during exertion in hot weather, because their ability to dissipate heat by means of evaporation of sweat is impaired.
